    Horse is pretty great - I had it in Italy. It should be readily available in the US soon instead of most of it being shipped to Canada.

    For those of you waiting for Ravello boots like me, are you just going to weather the storm, or cancel the order altogether? I'm still on the fence because I don't like having that money out of my pocket (the deposit) for so long a period of time.

    I am inclined to wait because at least for me I am in on non-Barrie ravello custom makeups that I won't be able to get elsewhere. Giving Epaulet an interest free loan of $325 per makeup is not the end of the world.

    That being said, there is some discussion about switching to Whiskey which may result in the boot coming sooner. Don't see why Ravello and Whiskey wouldn't be in the same boat, scarcity-wise.

    i'm not sure which shop you are working with, but many don't refund deposits.

    I am also confused about the whiskey/ravello availability, but am happy to accept that at least whiskey will be available...

    I'm pro whiskey bc a) the indy boots people have posted look AMAZING and b) waiting 2+ years for this boot seems very excessive.

    Whiskey often darkens with age and this not only would be a great make up in itself but it would also be a very similar make up.

    Just my opinion...

    I'm waiting it out for the Ravello boot. For this particular pre-order, I paid the full amount upfront, which was on Alden's old price scale, before all the recent increases. The way I see it, I will eventually end up buying a Ravello boot at some point, so it wouldn't make any sense to cancel this order, get my full refund, and then pay more for a similar boot in the future.

    Fantastic boots, the color must look very good in sunlight -- but what's with the trousers? Looks like a traffic cone [​IMG]

    yeah, seems like a reasonable rationale/investment.
